The first 5 miles flew by. I felt pretty good. I wasn't too concerned about time split mile times. I kept trying to push the pace. I also kept catching other runners. I ended up passing 10 runners after the first mile. Not a single runner passed me.
Mile 6: 6:38, Mile 7: 6:24, Mile 8: 6:23, Mile 9: 6:23, Mile 10: 6:14
Total Time: 32:24
Avg Pace: 6:29/mile
I was catching Dave Cook. I passed him about mile 8. He was still running pretty strong too. He kept up with me for most the way. I looked back because I thought I heard him slip on some ice. Dave did slip on ice, but didn't fall. I passed one final runner with 1/2 mile to go. I was picking up the pace and running towards the finish. Dave sprinted towards the end, and nearly caught me. He finished at about the same time as I finished. Amazing.
